As part of my quest to blog more, I decide that this year I would attempt to take part in NaBloPoMo next month. I am getting a bit of a jump start on the month by trying to get into the habit of posting more frequently. In order to do that, I have decided to start using topic prompts as a way to kick start my thoughts when I don't have anything better to write about. I am not crazy about this idea because I prefer just to write about what is going on in my life but I figure this will be a good way for my readers to learn a little bit more about me. So here it goes:
What's one thing you can't start your day without?
If you had asked me this question two weeks ago, I probably wouldn't have been able to answer you. But now, I know the answer without having to think twice about it. COFFEE!!! More specifically Gloria Jean's Butter Toffee for Kuerig coffee. Now that I am commuting 30+ miles to work one way, I am having to wake up earlier and leave my house earlier than I have had to in 10 years. Because of that, I now walk out the door with a cup of coffee in my hand. I never understood those who require that first cup o' Joe in order to function in the morning until now. I am really more of a tea drinker than a coffee drinker but I have found that tea just doesn't do it for me when I need the jolt in the morning to get going. And thank heavens for my Kuerig! Since the Sheriff works nights, making a pot of coffee never works for us. Either he is leaving for work and I am going to bed or I am leaving for work and he is going to bed. The only time we both drink coffee is Sunday mornings since we both need it to stay awake for church. This way we both get the cup of coffee we want in the flavor we want without having to waste a partial pot. It just makes life so much easier!
